A downloadable game for Windows

Buy Now$7.00 USD or more

Mitch made the journey to the pharmacy one evening, underestimating the true power of the storm outside. After a car accident blocks the shorter route home, he is forced to take shelter in the local library to call for a ride. The library however is now far different than the one he remembers from his childhood. Perhaps it would have been better to freeze outside instead?

Lost Cartridge: Cold Read is the first in a series of horror anthology games by Pure Ice Blue, creator of Lily's Well and I Cannot Drown. Explore the library, hide from those who want Mitch's life to end, and solve puzzles in order to possibly find a way to escape.

Lost Cartridge: Cold Read contains the following:
- Gore
- Violence
- Non-Sexual Nudity
- Horror Scenarios

This project is currently in development. More updates for it can be found on my Twitter and my Patreon.

It's July 15th now. What will happened after Lily's well?

Right there with the person below - just seeing a manual and a content warning when I buy it here.  Looks like it might have existed on the Game's Out post, but no sign of it after the 1.1.1 update. Any assistance would be great, game looks fantastic.

I'm so sorry! It's fixed now!

Beautiful, much appreciated.

I may have consumed a lot of cold medicine today so this might just be that buuuut... I just bought this game and I don't actually see a zip or executable in the list of downloads, just the two text files listed on the front page. =\

I'm so sorry! It's fixed now!

All good! I'm excited to play! :D
